    There's A Giant, Dinosaur-Like Gator Walking Around Florida Because Of Course There Is

    See ya later, alligator.

    Listen, it's 2020. All bets are off. But I have to say, I did not expect this.


    We all know weird stuff goes on in Florida. But this sight at the Valencia Golf Course in Naples this morning was...something to behold.

    Some worried the park had a breach:

    Jurassic Park obviously needs to upgrade their electric fence.

    Some said this was pretty on par for 2020:

    2020 said “this the last act: Jurassic park mfs”

    Though others were still shocked:

    Who had Florida turning into a real life Jurassic Park on their 2020 Bingo Card? 😩😩😩

    Some people were just ready to get rid of Florida altogether.

    Jurassic Park-sized gators in Florida?!

    While others were worried about what's still to come:

    Me seeing Jurassic Park trending in 2020:

    I, for one, am extremely disturbed. Concerned. Even afraid. What else have you got for us, 2020???
